We traveled on the Carnival Glory March 1-8, 2020. We flew in the night before and used Uber to get to the port in the morning. We got to the port at around 11:30, dropped off our luggage and it took about an hour ...

Food not as good

Carnival crew members are always polite and almost always happy and friendly. That’s a big plus, of course. The food wasn’t as good on this cruise, IMO. My husband used to really enjoy the filet and lobster ...

Welcome to 1992

What a piece of junk! Needs refurbished, or at least fixed. I never thought it possible for a cruise ships food to be so terrible. The biscuits resembled hardtack not actual biscuits. The crew is either complete ...

Great first impression

My first cruise! Everything went well except for an excursion ( Isla Rotan) that was not clearly explained. I thought that snorkeling would be supervised and found out the hard way that it was not. Nor was it ...

Can a cruise on the Valor get better than great?

My wife and I had been on this ship in September and it was one of our best cruises. We booked a balcony cabin on deck 10. Some are concerned about the noise from the LIdo deck when you book in this location, but ...

Carnival Glory Cruise

We had a great time. I am always trying to maintain a healthy weight. The cruise ship had all the foods that I like eating. I certainly did not want to gain 10 pounds from all the delicious food that was served ...

Very, very good cruise. Could've been great...

Embarkation/debarkation. No complaints. New Orleans has this down pat. Carnival should take what NOLA does and clone it for all their other ports. Ship. Before I go further, I must make it clear I am a fan of the ...

Decent first time cruise

Starting off on a positive note, it is evident the culture on this ship is focused around excellent service. Somewhere between 95-99% of the staff is incredible at their job. The cabin I stayed in seemed very ...

We chose this ship because we live close to port and it was a gift from our in-laws. I was trying to book from Miami on an MSC ship, but my in-laws wanted us to be closer to port. Everyone else was flying in, so we ...
